    I'M LOOKING FOR A CHARACTER SOMETHING LIKE GARRETT OF THIEF. IN ANY CASE, I WANT A MASTER THIEF, THAT SORT OF LOOKS LIKE HIM, OR AT LEAST HAS THE SAME STYLE. THE WORLD SETTING IS A FANTASY ONE; THINK GAME OF THRONES, LORD OF THE RINGS, SKYRIM- THINGS LIKE THAT. THERE IS MAGIC, THERE ARE MONSTERS. ANYHOW, AS FOR THE STORY IDEA, BASICALLY YOUR CHARACTER IS THE AFOREMENTIONED MASTER THIEF. HE BECOMES BONDED TO NEDAN, SOMEHOW; NO ONE IS REALLY QUITE SURE HOW, BECAUSE IT'S COMPLETELY UNHEARD OF. SHE IS A MONSTER THAT RUINS VILLAGES; NO ONE WOULD EVEN FANTASIZE THAT A BOND WAS POSSIBLE. PEOPLE THAT KNOW WHAT SHE IS ARE TERRIFIED TO SEE HER COMING, EVEN WALKING CALMLY BY HIS SIDE. OTHERS THAT DON'T KNOW, STILL HAVE AN UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING. YOUR CHARACTER DOESN'T EXACTLY NEED THE HELP IN HIS WORK, BUT WITH AN ALLY THAT CAN CREATE SHADOWS; IT MAKES THINGS RATHER EFFORTLESS ON HIS PART. THE CATCH IS, AFTER THE BOND IS FORMED, SHE LOSES HER NATURE AROUND HIM. SHE STARTS ACTING MORE LIKE HER OLD SELF, BEFORE SHE DIED. SHE'S PLAYFUL, AND BORDERS ON ANNOYING HALF THE TIME. CONSTANTLY WORRYING OVER HIM, SAYING THINGS LIKE HE HAS TO BE MORE CAREFUL, BECAUSE HE'S "JUST A LITTLE HUMAN" OR "YOU'RE TOO FRAGILE." I DON'T HAVE TOO MUCH BY WAY OF A GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, I JUST WANT TO SEE WHERE IT GOES.
    COULD ALSO BE A LOKI THING; BEFORE THE MOVIES.​
